Why UK?

There is a reason why over 30 million people visit the UK each year. With iconic cities such as London, Manchester and Edinburgh, rolling countryside and quaint seaside towns, the UK has a huge amount to offer.

Our paid placements in the UK are popular with international students studying at UK universities and who want to stay in the UK for their placement year. You can also join if you are from the UK and don’t want to spend time arranging a work placement – leave it to us so you can stay focussed on your studies and work.
